      "Delicately scented, this has aromas of yellow spring wildflower and white stone fruit. Light bodied and racy, the palate offers Meyer lemon, yellow apple and saline alongside crisp acidity that lends tension." Wine Enthusiast

    • "Eruzione 1614" Carricante Sicilia DOC 2018

      “Eruzione 1614” Carricante Sicilia DOC 2018

      In the history of Etna, the eruption of 1614 is legendary, as it lasted ten years and is thus to date the longest recorded eruption of the volcano that is still active today. A very impressive and fitting name for Planeta's Etna series of equally impressive wines.

      Carricante from Planeta's Etna vineyard is an exceptional growth full of freshness, energy and minerality. This noble grape variety thrives under exclusive conditions, on volcanic soils and at altitudes of 870 metres. A wonderful pleasure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, rich straw yellow. Opens with fragrant notes of flint, fragrant bergamot, some peach, very appealing. Taut and clear on the palate, lots of juicy peach, so right to bite into, fresh and very good tension, citrus on the final." Falstaff

      "Lemon-rind, pear and green-apple aromas follow through to a full body with a round, creamy palate of ripe and dried fruit that comes across mostly tropical. Creamy texture. Really tangy." James Suckling

      "Delicious, crisp and showing a great depth of flavor, this white from the slopes of Mount Etna doles out juicy yellow apple, peach, wild herb and savory, almost salty, mineral notes. Made with Carricante and 10% Riesling, it has racy acidity, energy and captivating mineral tension before finishing on mouthwatering notes of honeyed lemon drop candy." Wine Enthusiast

      Excellent the mineral Archineri from the ancient Carricante vine. With great clarity and freshness, it shows its typical aromatic profile of apple, banana. Peach and citrus fruit. Fascinatingly dense on the palate with a velvety texture, a hint of chalk and a long mineral-complex finish. Pre-Phylloxera = from vines with no roots! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, pale straw yellow. Balanced and appealing nose, opens with notes of lemon, fresh peach and sage. Starts very clear and fresh, then spreads out nicely, nice game, long and salty." Falstaff

      "Lovely aromas of pear pie with light vanilla and lime undertones. Full-bodied with tight, crisp acidity and a pear-puree and sherbet aftertaste." James Suckling

    • "Contrada Cavaliere" Bianco Etna DOC 2018

      “Contrada Cavaliere” Bianco Etna DOC 2018

      Benanti's new white comes 100% from the small vineyard (Contrada) Cavaliere. The vineyards in the municipality of Santa Maria di Licodìa develop at considerable altitudes (about 900 metres above sea level) with favourable conditions for all the indigenous varieties, both red and white berries, grown here with Guyot pruning. Here, both the Nerello and the Carricante produce wines with a well-defined structure and varietal aromas. The vines, which are about 50 years old, stand on sandy volcanic soil that is rich in minerals. The climate is alpine, low in precipitation and provides the vines with a high degree of ventilation and very large temperature differences between day and night.

      straw yellow with bright green reflections. The bouquet is intense, rich, generous and delicately fruity with hints of orange blossom and ripe apple. On the palate dry, mineral, harmonious with a pleasant acidity, aromatic pressure and an interesting aftertaste of anise and almonds. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A medium-bodied, crisp white with aromas of lemon zest, papaya, smoked almonds and orange sorbet. Gentle bitterness and flavors of lemon pith and pips on the palate." James Suckling

    • "Contrada Rinazzo" Bianco Superiore Etna DOC 2018

      “Contrada Rinazzo” Bianco Superiore Etna DOC 2018

      The area around the small town of Milo is the only vineyard on the Etna where Etna Bianco is allowed to be bottled as Superiore - and with good reason: only Carricante may be planted on the steep vineyard, which consists of dozens of small terraces. The vines are grown like a small tree on chestnut wood poles. The eastern exposure and the sea, which is not far away, allow the grapes to ripen late, thus achieving very constant acidity levels, resulting in a white wine of aromatic finesse and freshness that is unrivalled even on Etna.

    • "San Lorenzo" Bianco Etna DOC 2019

      “San Lorenzo” Bianco Etna DOC 2019

      Giuseppe Russo cultivates part of the 12 hectares of San Lorenzo vineyards at an altitude of about 750 metres on the slopes of Etna near Randazzo. The lava flows of recent decades have created a porous soil here, rich in volcanic rock, which provides excellent drainage.

      Just 1,200 bottles were filled from this first vintage. The more than 80 year old vines deliver an extremely low yield, the more complex and multi-layered is the present result. Fine saltiness, light stone fruit and a well-dosed extract sweetness flow from the glass. On the palate a good structure, the play of acids and the noticeable minerality support the subtle aromas of white peach and grapefruit. In the finish then smoky and with a nice salty note. It is best at 12°, and in a few years it will be even better! SUPERIORE.DE

    Things to know aboutcarricante 

    This autochthonous white grape variety from Sicily is now a rarity, as there were only 205 hectares left in the last statistics in 2010. However, since some larger companies such as Tenuta delle Terre Nere, Tasca d'Almerita, Planeta, Cusumano, Graci or Benanti have invested a lot in the last few years around Mount Etna, it can be assumed that some of them have again put more emphasis on this elegant, fresh variety and that the downward trend has stopped. Still, there's not much left.

    And although it is called Cattarratu in some villages on the northern side of Mount Etna, it is not related to the Catarratto Bianco grape variety, but is usually its blending partner in Etna bianco. Carricante matures quite late, is productive and glows straw yellow in the glass. Carricante is usually the main variety in Etna bianco - fresh white wines, fragrant with white flowers and aromas of oranges, grapefruit and often a little anise. Fine acidity and moderate alcohol make these white wines from Etna more sought after than quantities are available.

    The name comes supposedly from the yield court of the variety: "caricare" means "load", so you can (or better: could) load many grapes on the trailer during the harvest. The variety is cultivated almost exclusively in eastern Sicily in the province of Catania on the slopes of Mount Etna. It is authorised in the DOC wines Etna and Sicilia. There are also some small cultivated areas on the Aeolian islands, e.g. on Lipari. SUPERIORE.DE
